Ok, so you’ve landed that big restaurant pest control account because the last guy in couldn’t seem to get ahold of the situation. What are you gonna do that’s different to solve the problem? Commercial pest control services are a whole different animal compared to residential and the level of commitment needs to go way up. Not that you don’t treat your homeowners well too- But often times you’re bare bones on your bids for these accounts and making return trips eat into your profits big time. You want to make sure that while you’re there, you are finding and solving the problem with the expectation of getting paid and not hunting down something you may have missed for free.
Well, while most articles might be about which products to use and what stands up better to the heat and moisture in such a place this ones not that. This is all about where to look and if you’ve had any experience in restaurant pest control, you know this can make all the difference. You see, I’ve often said, “Give me and ounce of store bought product and I can kill more bugs than a homeowner could with a gallon.” I bet you can too and the difference is knowledge of course and with that comes the knowing where to look.
My theory is that a commercial kitchen for a roach is a lot like going to Disney. Every where they look there is a wonderland of food, water and hiding spots galore. Sure there’s the ever dangerous log plume (your treatment) but so many times that ride doesn’t even exist by the next day being washed away or disintegrated by the heat and humidity. Even your baits have more competition than American Idol and those tiny little dots smeared under a stainless steel table dry crusty and turn brown.
No, the difference for you is all about where you look and finding even that one lone nymph behind the clipboard hanging on a wall. Over the years I’ve found some real classic spots and that’s what my video is going to show you. It’s not a complete list by any means but hopefully it will add to your library of what you’ve seen in your experiences. From roaches in the dishwasher to the wheels of equipment grab yourself a flashlight and lets find some roaches.
